East Bay Poetry Summit
Monday, May 27th, 2:00 PM
Various Locations, Oakland, CA
David Buuck's house is the venue for the closing BBQ of the five-day East Bay Poet Summit, which takes place in non-institutional spaces and features visiting poets Bhanu Kapil, Dolores Dorantes, Douglas Rothschild, and many others.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
